Uncle Ray's Corner
—By Ramon Coffman
The Mississippi River is a highway
of commerce today. Steamers, barges
and other boats go up and down the
river and it is crossed each day by
thousands of persons in motor cars
and aboard trains. High above it fly
airplanes and those aboard them see
many miles to the nortlf and to
the south.
That is true as of today, but there
was a time—only a little more than
four centuries ago—when nothing
was known to white men about this
mighty river. Counting the Missouri
River as part of the Mississippi,
we have the longest river in the
world on this continent, often
spoken of as the Mississippi-Missouri.
It was, however, without a place on
maps for more than 40 years after
the first voyage of Columbus.
The Mississippi was discovered by
Spaniards and the leader of the
party was Ferdinand (or Fernando)
de Soto. He never had heard of the
river and the idea of finding it was
outside the reach of his mind. What
he was looking for was gold.
Born in Spain, De Soto had made
a voyage to the New World during
his early 20s. One place he visited
after reaching this side of the At
lantic was the colony of Darien, in
Central America. Later he helped
to explore the coasts of Guatemala
and Yucatan. Still later, during his
30s, he went to Peru to help Pizarro
obtain a firm hold on the land of
the Incas.
Going back to Spain with a good
sized fortune, De Soto married the
daughter of a wealthy man. At this
point he might have settled down,
but the-fever for adventure was in
his blood. He heard that gold might
be found in Florida and decided to
go there.
Gathering a fleet of sailing vessels
and several hundred men, De Soto
reached the Florida coast on May
2, 1539. Anchor was cast In a bay
near the present city of Tampa.
De Soto sent some of his soldiers
to round up several Indians. He
hoped that they would tell where
gold was to be found but they failed
to provide, such knowledge.
Marching northward, De Soto and
his men reached the Flint River,
after months of hard struggle. There
they pitched camp to spend the
winter at a point along the present
border of Georgia and Florida.

Prisoners Won't Dress
A “no clothes” strike wa§ the
innovation of 65 Communists in
Jail at Ambala, India. The prison
ers refused to wear any garments
except a loin cloth, as a protest
against the insufficient supply of
nint.hing and bedding given them
by their jailers*
Take My Word for It
—By Fronk Colby
It is surprising that many people
of good education sound the second
syllable of America as “murr” to
rhyme with purr, burr. Willkie was
much criticized for his “murr” pro
nunciation during the campaign of
1940.
Correctly pronounced, the second
syllable of America is given the short
“eh” sound as in merit, merry, Mer
rimack, never the "urr” sound in
m«xy. Correct pronunciation:
uh-MEHR-l-kuh.
Andrew Carnegie pronounced his
surname: kahr-NAY-ghee (hard “g”
as in “ghost”). It should be so
pronounced.
Public speakers should watch the
tendency to telescope such three
syllable words as annual (“AN-yull”),
history (“HISS-tree”), battery
(“BAT-ree”), etc. The words should
have three syllables, thus: AN-yoo
ul; HI88-tuh-ree; BAT-er-ee.
Here are a number of other words
which should have three syllables:
> * .
Average, busily, cabinet. Champion,
chocolate, crockery, diary, different,
easily, factory, family, finally, gal
lery, government, grocery, idea,
interest, ivory, Jewelry, leverage,
liable, library, licorice, memory,
mockery, mystery, opera, probably,
restaurant, robbery, sophomore, usu
ally, vacuum, violent, violet.
Occasionally the Eng- of England
and English is heard with ap “eng"
sound, as in Engle. Of course, there
is no authortiy for this. Say:
ING-glish.
Human and humble are often pro
xounced without the initial "h," as:
YOO-m'n, UM-bl. In serious speech
it is advisable to pronounce the “h"
since many people think, rightly or
wrongly, that the ■ dropped “b" la
dialectal. Recommended pronuncia
tion: HYOO-m'n, HUM-bl.
Humane is: hyoo-MAIN; human
ism is HYOO-muh-niz'm; humanist
is: HYOO-muh-nist; hunumlty:
hyoo-MAN-i-tee. -
